Sketchbook Brigade meetup at the Reid Park Rose Garden so that I may photograph the roses in the morning light. The skies were blue, so I knew I wasn't going to benefit from the soft light of cloud cover, but I hoped that this time of year the light would not be too harsh (like it is during the peak of summer).
I was pleased! Hundreds of roses were nicely in bloom, and I enjoyed photographing the morning light on them. I was even able to find some roses still in shade, and some nicely back-lit. Though there were plenty of deep red roses in bloom, I found myself favoring the subtle colors in the lighter blooms.
